NEW YORK –September 17, 2014 – USA Network today announced the start of production on its new high-octane original drama, COMPLICATIONS, which began shooting this week in Atlanta, Georgia. The 10-episode original series from Executive Producer and BURN NOTICE creator, Matt Nix, stars Jason O’Mara (“Vegas”) and is set to premiere in 2015.
“‘COMPLICATIONS’ is a story about the making of a hero – how an ordinary doctor’s split-second decision changes the course of his life and the lives of everyone around him,” said Nix. “It’s tremendous to be working with USA again and with such a talented cast. The writers’ room is going strong and I cannot wait for audiences to see this new series.”
The gritty drama centers around John Ellison (O’Mara), a disillusioned suburban ER doctor who finds his existence transformed when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting, saving a young boy’s life and killing one of his attackers. When Ellison learns the boy is the son of an influential gang leader and is still a target, he is compelled to save him at any cost. Ellison soon discovers that his own life – and his outlook on medicine – may never be the same.
COMPLICATIONS also stars Jessica Szohr (“Gossip Girl”) as Gretchen, a reckless but capable ER nurse, Beth Riesgraf (“Leverage”) as John’s wife, Samantha, and Lauren Stamile (“Burn Notice”) as John’s by-the-book coworker, Dr. Bridget O’Neil, who finds herself dealing with the aftermath of his actions.
The series, from Fox Television Studios, is created by Matt Nix who also serves as Executive Producer and director of the pilot. Michael Horowitz will serve as Co-Executive Producer
